Default Default Android colors

I recently installed a genealogy app (families)

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...elgen.families

which uses sqlite and which is quite good. But I'm not crazy about the silver-gray color it uses for its background. So I wrote to the author who told me the app uses the "default android colors" but was otherwise unhelpful.

So, I thought to ask here. Is there a tool or app that could modify the default android colors an app or screen uses?

Thanks.

On a per app level, i'm not sure it's currently possible short of modifying the app itself.
Judging from the screenshots, the app needs to be updated for holo (the UI theme in android 3.0+) anyway.

On a rom level essentially you want your rom to be themeable.
Roms such as cyanogen mod have a built in theming engine.
If you're rooted and not on a rom that has a theme engine (such as stock), you can use HKThemeManager

Though most themes focus on the holo assets, theming the pre holo assets isnt really a focus for anyone since they're becoming rather rare.

I am rooted and on stock using Nova launcher. Are you saying stock has a theme tool?
